Happy World Laboratory Animal Day
Wow! Get out your penny whistles and pop caps, it’s April 24th and World Laboratory Animal Day! Oh boy, let’s celebrate! Today’s the day the Chimpanzee covered in human lipstick and hairspray saunters up to your doorstep and offers a year’s supply of cheap Mary Kay cosmetics! I can’t wait!
This is a day? It is. And it’s now. Yippee. Enjoy some films.
